DO NOT BOOK ANY SERVICES THROUGH THEM!
We booked a taxi, which did not arrive. We later found out it was overpriced.
When you arrive, they'll try and sit you down for a friendly drink and chit chat, which is just a front for tour sales pitch. Do not buy these they are fantastically over priced and completely unnecessary. We ended up saving ourselves 1152% by using the perfectly fine and frequent public bus service.
1. We were quoted a price for the train to Aswan (USD 60.50 each) and they told us that obtaining a ticket on the day would be "no problem" at all. However, when we made our booking the staff gritted their teeth and told us they would do everything they can to get a ticket "at such short notice". They returned with the tickets and a sweaty brow and told us "because the train was full, I had to pay an extra USD10 to the ticket manager in bribes to get the tickets..you are very lucky I know the ticket manager personally" etc, etc. I was angry with this news, but felt obliged to pay something towards their sweat and bribes, so I paid USD 5. Then when we got on the train, you can probably guess what we saw, rows of empty cabins!! We asked the train guard if the train would fill up later further down the line and he told us that there were many tickets left and that the hotel had cheated us.
In sum, the staff lie and smile to you at the same time. I contacted the management about our concerns and they said they were sorry, but did nothing to address the serious breach of trust issues. It seems that mgmt is quite happy for their staff to prey on hotel guests.
